First Person Singular presents: ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR....: The History of Rock 'n' Roll in Ten Songs With Greil Marcus
Pegasus Books, Thursday, August 21 at 7:30pm
First Person Singular presents

ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR....:

The history of rock 'n' roll in ten songs

With Greil Marcus

Special Guest Cyril Jordan of The Flamin' Groovies

Thursday, August 21, 7:30 pm

Location: Pegasus Books on Solano

Can the history of rock 'n' roll be told in ten songs? For Greil Marcus, who can divine the soul of the nation from a single guitar note, that may be nine too many. But his new book, The history of rock 'n' roll in ten songs, fulfills its promise, though not with the songs you might expect. Here, instead of "That's All Right", "A Hard Day's Night", "Respect", or "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction", you'll find ten less familiar sides that give an even deeper account of rock 'n' roll's six-decade drama of abandon. To celebrate a work that will stand with the author's Mystery Train and Lipstick Traces, we present Greil Marcus in conversation with Cyril Jordan, guitarist and songwriter for The Flamin' Groovies. The band's "Shake Some Action" kicks off the book, and Cyril is bringing his guitar. This history in ten songs... might just go to eleven.

Wild Within: How Rescuing Owls Inspired a Family

Melissa Hart, a desperately lonely young divorcée and L.A. transplant, finds herself stranded in rainy Eugene, Oregon, working from home in the company of her two cats and two large mutts. At the local dog park, she meets a fellow dog owner named Jonathan. When he invites her to accompany him on a drive to Portland to retrieve six hundred pounds of frozen rats and a fledgling barred owl, sparks fly!

Wild Within is a delight, an uncommon braiding of family, heartbreak, romance, redemption, and—of course—raptors.” —Lyanda Lynn Haupt, author of Crow Planet and The Urban Bestiary

Melissa Hart grew up in Southern California and earned her B.A. in Literature from the College of Creative Studies at U.C. Santa Barbara. She earned her M.F.A. in Creative Writing at Goddard College in Vermont. She is a nature and travel writer and the author of Gringa: A Contradictory Girlhood. She teaches feature and travel writing at the University of Oregon.
